Default Hiatt in Dirty Jeans


The Indiana-born singer-songwriter has been releasing albums since the mid-‘70s, and has become even more prolific in the last decade. “Dirty Jeans and Mudslide Hymns” is his seventh studio release since 2000, and 20th overall.

Once again recording with his road band, Hiatt knows how to write and frame a durable song – little wonder he’s been covered by everyone from Bob Dylan to Iggy Pop. His tunes frequently fall into a midtempo pocket that draws on numerous American traditions: the wit and rhythms of blues and soul, mostly, but also the twang of country, a hint of Tex-Mex, a shot of rock ‘n’ roll, tied together by sharply observed images.


But every album contains a few moments of mastery, and “Dirty Jeans” is no exception. An excellent album for one of the most underrated american artists. Produced by Kevin Shirley, responsible for the recent great albums of Iron Maiden, Joe Bonamassa, Journey to name a few, the album sound captures the essence of contemporary Americana. No big sound, just raw but clean rock'n'country'n'blues'n'TexMex!

Currently on tour in the US, we can only hope of some euro dates in the next few months.
